Just what are you trying to pull here Scott?

They left out "horny".

Shish!

The shortest path in the thesaurus from adaptable to unadaptable is

adaptable
changeable
wayward
intractable
inflexible
unadaptable

Sandip

shrewd?
might be cultural differences though.

if "Bushism" was an adjective would it go in the positive personality adjectives list ?

considering : Funny---positive
and we all know :stupid

Hi Scott
If I ever come out to Cali...I'm going to make sure that I spend some time at your restaurant in the somewhat futile attempt to shake your hand and thank you for all the laughs. At the very least you can shake my hand if I spend over two bills at the restaurant...take care

I bet it would be interesting to ask some of your close friends and family to describe themselves and yourself in one word and to compare the results.

I guess that means the people at example-help.org and I have different ideas of what is a positive personality trait. I wonder if it's cultural or just personal to their group, and if cultural - which culture? I would cross a busy street to avoid a zealot, and yet they consider that a positive trait.

Here is my contribution!

HAVE FUN!

You'd think more people would say "independent." There's not a single person I can think of who doesn't self-apply the term.

I'm related (by blood) to a housewife who's never had a job in her life, and moved straight from her parents' place to her husband's. She's a self-described "independent" person. Teenagers? Same deal. Mining company executives, who live off of the largess of generous giveaways of public land use rights plus direct subsidies? They think they're the epitome of individual self-support.

So why does nobody pick "independent" as their adjective?

Ethan

Would we have found reading that list uplifting if you hadn't told us beforehand that it would be? More subtle hypnosis afoot, methinks.

CDriK

Love you man take care.

Carol Snider

I written similar posts, even calling myself a "word slut." They're here:

Silly?

Scmendrick the Magician

Why is obedient on the list, but flexible and fascinating aren't?

Andy Coulter

how is zany a positive = it is usually indicative of an idiot

Avi

I guess I can't be hypnotized.

Bolt

I didn't know what one word could describe me. I thought long and hard, but could get nothing. After reading through that list, I know what word describes me.

Endurable

I am able to endure just about anything, whether I want to or not, and you wouldn't believe how long people put up with me.

Is no one else concerned that legendary humorist Scott Adams has turned Dilbert Blog into the MySpace "Mood" menu?

Instead of "one word only", let's all give ourselves a bowling name. I usually go with Ralph, my wife always bowls under the name of Trixie and we both make sure no one ever connects our real names with our bowling scores despite that paean to the overhead projector known as electronic scoring. The bowling name is also the key to Giant Superbowl success, see E-Bay? E-Scab? Giant Tip - Get Bowling Names at http://michaeljamesh.blogspot.com/2008/01/e-bay-e-scabs-giant-tips.html

Arthur

This is too obvious. The reason so many positive personal adjectives are missing is it's a UK-based web site. If you've ever lived in the UK no further explanation is needed.

T.G.

Agreed with "Me" that I wouldn't count the word perfect.

I would really hate to be "perfect" ... too bad, that spoiled any benefit or hypnosis, subtle or not.

The real definition of a perfect person is the person who, to himself, is completely incapable of acknowledging its own failures/mistakes/errors/flaws/etc.

Archana

Ooooh - who would have thought it possible? All your positive adjectives describe me! Wow!
